Congratulations to "Johanna", the winner in Melinda's giveaway. Please contact JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE to claim your prize!

A homicide detective’s violent family history repeats itself in #1 Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh’s novel of murder, secrets, and retribution.

For more than twenty-five years, Philadelphia homicide detective Bree Taggert has tucked away the nightmarish childhood memories of her parents’ murder-suicide…Until her younger sister, Erin, is killed in a crime that echoes that tragic night: innocent witnesses and a stormy marriage that ended in gunfire. There’s just one chilling difference. Erin’s husband, Justin, has vanished.
Bree knows how explosive the line between love and hate can be, yet the evidence against her troubled brother-in-law isn’t adding up. Teaming up with Justin’s old friend, former sheriff’s investigator and K-9 handler Matt Flynn, Bree vows to uncover the secrets of her sister’s life and death, as she promised Erin’s children. But as her investigation unfolds, the danger hits close to home. Once again, Bree’s family is caught in a death grip. And this time, it could be fatal for her.

If you’re a fan of mysteries, thrillers and Melinda Leigh’s fast-paced tales, be sure to add CROSS HER HEART to your reading list this Spring!

  1. Mysteries and suspense were my first books and my favorites for 10 decades before finding romances. They are still favorites as are romances with them as a primary element. Even "simple" tragedies in families are often not so simple. Unknown factors may have been involved and ramifications may follow, even years later. This sounds like an interesting and tense book.

  2. Really good her suspense!!

  3. I love Melinda's books, especially the Morgan Dane series; they are fantastic! I had the opportunity to grab an ARC of this one from NetGalley and it was sooo good. I think Bree Taggert might actually jump ahead of Morgan. I am looking forward to reading more of her series.

    1. For some reason this did not take my name? Thanks for the chance, Denise H

  4. I'm reading one of her books now, and I'm loving it. This one looks awesome also! Thanks for the chance to win it.

  5. Love Melinda's books!
